This refreshing white cranberry margarita is the perfect winter cocktail — suitable for Christmas, New Year’s Eve, or even just a snowy day. It’s a simple mix of just four ingredients, and a garnish of glittered cranberries and rosemary adds some seriously festive sparkle.

For true margarita flair, start by combining kosher salt and granulated sugar, then rim each glass with the mixture. You’ll fill a cocktail shaker with ice, tequila, white cranberry juice, lime juice, orange liqueur or triple sec, and shake until the shaker is frosty. Strain and serve, and top with the sugared garnishes.

If you can’t find white cranberry juice, regular cranberry juice can be used in its place.
